1. What are your favorite types of blog posts to read?
I love reading character interviews. It’s amazing to get to know characters in a more personal way. If I’ve read the book already, I like the additional information that I’ve gained. If I haven’t, then it’s a great way for me to find out if I like the writing style and if I’m intrigued by the character and want to read the actual book.
I only know one other blogger, Ceillie, who does character interviews, and she is amazing. Check out her character interviews!
2. Who is your favorite female character?
This is seriously such a difficult question.
I am a huge fan of Branwen from City of Strife and City of Betrayal. Spies are always so interesting to read about, and I love how Branwen uses her needle skills to create disguises. She also has such a close relationship to her family. It’s so beautiful to read.
I also love reading about Hitomi and reading about her adventures in Sunbolt and Memories of Ashes. She’s so unsure about herself in the beginning but she grows throughout the book and keeps learning and looking for answers.
3. What is your favorite fictional sport? e.g. Quidditch, Exy
I only know of one fictional sport – at least, I can only think of one fictional sport that I know of. Namely, quidditch. And I think it’s quite a cool sport. I even played some quidditch while I lived in Dresden, but muggle quidditch is so dangerous and I realised that it just wasn’t the sport for me.
4. What is your favorite standalone book?
I’m going to have to say Saree, which takes place in Sri Lanka, India and Australia. It’s one of the books that I read right at the beginning of this year, and it tugged at my heart strings. The writing style was intricate and it was fascinating to reflect on this masterpiece after reading it, to realise how the solitary threads were woven into a full story.
5. What is the last word of the last book you finished?
“wolves.” from The Tiger’s Watch. The book didn’t quite meet my expectations – I’ll be posting my review soon.
6. Do you like to reread books?
I don’t reread books too often because I’ve got so many other books that I want to read. However, I do want to make a point of rereading my 4 and 5 star books in order to relive the experience.
7. What character everyone seems to hate, but you love?
I don’t know.
8. Who is your dreamcast/fancast for the main character of your favorite book?
I don’t watch that many movies, so it’s really difficult for me to think of people who could play my favourite characters from my favourite books.
9. Which was the last book that made you cry?
I didn’t quite cry but The Hollow Girl really got to me. My eyes were certainly wet.
10. What book do you want to read but you haven’t read it because you are intimidated by it?
I really want to read Bone China. There are three reasons as to why I’m intimidated by it. It’s adult fiction, not new adult but adult, a genre that I don’t read as often. It’s also kind of long. And the third reason is that I’m so excited about it – I’m worried my expectations are too high.
11. What is one of your unpopular opinions?
Dancing is a sport.
1. What is your favourite time of the day to read?
2. Do you like to listen to music while reading? If yes, what kind of music?
3. What was your favourite book/series in your childhood?
4. What is your favourite trope to read about?
5. How much do book covers influence your reading choices?
6. What do you most enjoy about book blogging?
7. What hobbies, other than reading, do you have? I am assuming that one of your hobbies is reading, since I’ve nominated book bloggers.
8. Which character do you wish you were friends with in real life?
9. Which character’s wardrobe would you like to have?
10. What medium do you prefer for your reading? Paperbacks, e-book readers, PC, hardcovers, etc?
11. In which bookish universe would you like to live?
